    Hi All,
     I am looking to see if it is possible to set the network speed and duplex of a phone from AXL. I see the tag XZznetworkMediaType which can have values of various speeds and duplexes, but cannot find any methods to set it.
     
    I am working with CUCM 7.1
     
    Thanks,
     
    Mike

    Hi Mike,
     
    Did you succeed in doing this? If yes, can you please share how?
     
    Thanks,

    It's not possible to modify these basic network settings via AXL.  This makes some sense, in the same way that you can't modify DHCP, IP/subnet or other basic networking for the phone via AXL either - doing so could potentially make the phone inacessible to AXL.
     
    If the phones are connected to Cisco switches, you should be able to modify port configuration settings on the switch via telnet and IOS CLI commands.  See also the UCX API, which provides an XML and Java access to phone provisioning on CME: http://developer.cisco.com/web/ucxapi/home

    Thanks David,
     
    I looked at the API but finding it a bit difficult to understand how can I change this particular setting.
    Do you have any sample code for this setting change on the phone that you can share?
     
    Thanks.
